Isaiah 48:13-15 Expanded Bible (EXB)

13 I ·made [L laid the foundation of] the earth with my own hands.
    With my right hand I spread out the skies.
When I call them,
    they ·come [stand] together before me.”

14 All of you, come together and listen.
    ·None of the gods [L Who among them…?] said these things would happen.
The Lord ·has chosen someone [has an ally; or loves him; C a reference to Cyrus, king of Persia; see 41:2; 44:28–45:6; 46:11; 48:14–16]
    to carry out his ·wishes [desire; purpose] against Babylon,
·to attack [L his arm will be against] the Babylonians;

15 “I have spoken; I have called him.
    I have brought him, and I will make him successful.
